Sexual Health Q&A

What is sexual health?

Sexual health refers to your sexuality and your mental and physical well-being in relation to it. If you have positive feelings toward sex and do not have any physical illnesses or ailments affecting your sexual functioning, then your sexual health is intact. Dr. Ramos can help you address any mental or physical complications affecting your sexuality.

Sexual health can be a sensitive topic for you if you have problems affecting it. Dr. Ramos takes a gentle approach towards discussing your sexual health with you. She also helps educate you about your sexual health and encourages you to ask questions to gain more information. 

If you need it, she develops a treatment strategy to address your sexual health complications and helps you book follow-up appointments.

What are some complications that can affect my sexual health?

Men and women often experience different complications in relation to their sexual health, but some complications can affect you regardless of your gender. You might experience:

Sexually transmitted diseases

Conditions like chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, syphilis, and others, can affect you whether you’re a man or woman. These diseases spread through sexual contact, so you should get tested regularly if you’re at risk. 

Men’s sexual health complications

Many sexual health complications common in men start as you age or related to environmental factors that predisposes them to lack or low testosterone, which might cause problems such like erectile dysfunction or a lack of interest in sex. These complications can affect your intimate relationships over time. If they last for more than a few months, you should book an appointment with Dr. Ramos. 

Women’s sexual health complications

There are many sexual complications that can affect you as a woman, including vaginal dryness, a lack of interest in sex, pain during sex, and trouble reaching orgasm. Dr. Ramos can help you determine if your problems come from stress, anxiety, past trauma, hormone disorders, or other factors. 

How are sexual health complications treated?

Dr. Ramos works with you to find the best possible approach to restore your sexual health, using an integrative approach. If you have a sexually transmitted disease, she might prescribe antibiotics to help rid you of it, if indicated, or any other medication based on the cause of the disease (parasite or virus). She also instructs you to refrain from having unprotected sex until shortly after you finish taking your medication.

Complications like erectile dysfunction, vaginal dryness, or a lack of interest in sex are often treatable with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Dr. Ramos replenishes hormones like estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and others, in men and women, with hormones derived from plants. Bioidentical hormones behave exactly like your natural hormones and can treat symptoms of hormone loss, including sexual health complications.
